Q.Wisteria Tree Put Out Small Leaves In Spring And Stopped (became Dormant?)

Zone Welling, Kent, UK | Anonymous added on July 5, 2021 | Answered

My well established wisteria tree was showing no problems and was very vigorous growing, it is a proper tree with the trunk. This year small green fronds has appeared as usual but then stopped in that stated and is staying like this until now (July). The spring new little leaves/fronds are still there, they are not wilting but it is going no further, there were no flowers this year at all.

Do you regularly prune your wisteria? They should be pruned twice a year to keep them healthy and in bounds. This fall you can cut out the dead wood. Check the wood for borer holes. They are the most common cause of wisteria failure. I have attached links for more information on pruning, diseases, and general care that should help:
